How to remove (uninstall) Search.handycafe.com

This entry is devoted to an advertising software called Search.handycafe.com and methods to delete it. If you suffer from constant advertising on the Internet, and the productivity of the computer has suddenly diminished - this article will explain you what adware is, spot the current issue and sweep the machine of suspicious software.

Search.handycafe.com

Adware includes a pretty long list of diverse types, but the very famous of them are redirects, browser toolbars and adware. You should realize that the abundance of banners isn't an accident - they were created to do this from the start. Many users believe that such tools are useful, being tricked by impressive rosters of their features, but all these advantages either do not work, or do not exist at all. To make it clear for you, we will explain the basic functions of each type of advertising tools.

  • Common adware is famous for the never-ending spam with all possible kinds of ads, pop-ups and banners. These tools can be disguised as anything: system optimizers, software for finding games and movies, programs for updating and downloading drivers, video and audio players and much more. Offers which are displayed by advertising tools are not reliable and you better not click on them.
  • Browser hijackers invite another type of trouble. Instead of advertising they redirect the users to the untrusted websites. These utilities help the foul website owners to create traffic and endangers the whole PC.
  • Browser toolbars show ads too, but not as active as other two sorts of advertising utilities. Except that they pick information about victim's search queries and visited sites, which are then transmitted on to web-criminals for further usage. Such data can be used to trick its owner or sold to third parties for a solid price.

Each of above written kinds of adware uses special techniques to get into the machine and to act inside of it. In spite of the difference in ways, they have one thing in common: they were originally created for scam and deception. Aside from obvious discomfort, such as abundance of irritating propositions, Search.handycafe.com has one more dangerous feature: the abnormal decrease of PC's protection.

 

Now, when we explained why was Search.handycafe.com, you should understand how to discover it. Now you know that the principal property of advertising utilities is the rise in the number of banners. Another mark is the emergence of additional tools on your computer that you haven’t installed. This happens when user passes all links that Search.handycafe.com provides, viewing the dangerous web-pages and loading software from there. Unwanted programs behave stealthy so you can't realize that you actually downloaded them.

Another property is a significant slowdown of the PC, and an enlargement in the boot time of the system. We should say that suchlike issues frequently appear for other reasons, not related to advertising tools. The ground for this retardation is that in contradistinction to good programs, virus has to restlessly act, generating advertising and redirecting user to undesired websites. This means that adware is running at PC's boot and shutting down only with the whole machine. If 5 or more such tools will get into your computer, their contemporaneous functioning overburdens the system, and demands so many resources that good programs just can't work. This can induce critical errors of different services, trouble turn-offs and retardation. If you witness any of these symptoms - you should check the system with a quality antivirus or delete all dangerous software by hand.
